actions. knowing her, as her mother, as well as anybody in the world knew her, did it surprise you that she was so courageous in such a terrifying moment? >> not at all. she was truly selfless. she would not hesitate to think to save anyone else before herself, and especially children. she loved them more than life, and she would definitely put herself in front of them any day, any day and for any reason. it doesn't surprise anybody that knows vicki that she did this. >> carly, vicki was your sister, you were all very close, as your mother just said. it's obviously a terrible, torrential loss, you must be grieving horribly, yet at the same time hearing the president of the united states talk about your sister as a hero, it must have been very moving to you. >> it was very much. i appreciate all his kind words that he did say about my sister. she was a hero, and she still is. >> what kind of person was she, carlee? >> she was so caring. she put anybody else before her. she wanted the best for everyone. she just loved life, and she loved teaching. >> and jillian, you're all wearing g
now. the president promised action. the white house announcing vice president joe biden will head an administrationwide effort to come up with legislation in the wake of the newt down massacre. what form that takes is not clear. i'm bill hemmer. welcome to "america's newsroom.". >> hi, everybody, i'm martha maccallum. the president said he would to everything in his power to bring about change after a gunman massacred 26 people including 20 young first-graders at a connecticut elementary school. we're told he will announce the effort today. it will happen a couple hours from now. bill: steve centanni from the white house. what do we expect there, steve? >> reporter: well, bill, we expect the president and vice president joe biden come into the briefing room in a couple hours and begin process gathering information from inside their administration to formulate new policy, any kind of policy. any idea that could prevent this kind of mass violence, these kind of school shootings to happen in the future. this cops as newt town, connecticut, deals with the mass shooting. the yesterday
of the housing market. while they have already taken action to pretext the financial mortgage fund for single family loans from seeking federal funds, the f.y. 2012 report suggests that much more needs to be done to prevent such a draw. i want to hear more today about the administration's actions and proposals to minimize the risk to taxpayers stemming from their business and what safeguards are in place to ensure the quality and sustainability of the program. if the administration's actions and proposals will not be sufficient to restore f.h.a.'s fiscal health, i'm inclined to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle on the banking committee to find a bipartisan way to make shoo -- that happen. before i turn to ranking member shelby, i want to recognize his work as ranking member on this committee over the past six years. this may be our last hearing together this year, and we will have no ranking member next year. i'm part of our bipartisan record over the last two years we continued it the tradition of bipartisanship that this committee has been known for by passing signature bil
going to do. and action they had taken. and demonstrate and show us they were capable of stepping up and doing the job. progress has been made. that particular showing has not happened. i look at this, i think it's very clear that we own the land. i think it's very clear that we have a responsibility for maintaining the watershed and the assets that are there. both the underground and the surface expression of that, as you stated. we own several pieces of land where we have recreation, and we contract that out. golf courses is classic example. and this is similar, we have a piece of land to protect for the water purposes. where there is another public use, that goes beyond our expertise, we ask someone to do for us. the obvious one is the sister agency whose business is recreation and parks and management. that's not the only option but it's the first and most obvious as we come back to this in an mou discussion, we need to think about it this those terms. the same way we would if contracting with arnold palmer to run a course. what is it we want done. are these responsible bidders.
. >>> we probably saved the baby's life. >> the fast action taken moments after a baby was born in the streets of san francisco. good afternoon, i am tori. a woman gave birth and the mother and baby are both in the hospital right now. how quick-thinking officers helped to save the baby's life. >> they are being credited with saving the baby's life. it as touch and go situation. they are young fathers here out of the bay view station s we weren't able to speak to them first hand. as you imagine, they had an adrenaline charged experience and at home resting. we are hoping to hear from them over the next couple of days. we did hear from the acting captain and this is what he has to say about the officer's actions. >> they made extraordinary decisions and right decisions and got the small child to the hospital and saved the baby's life. if they are not heros, i don't know who is. >> reporter: here is what happened. around 2:00, a woman arrive at a shelter in the bay view district. she had given birth to the baby and knocked on the door for help. we spoke to the man who did not wish

. the archdiocese for catholic schools has not yet called for action. but tighter security has been discussed. the principal at saint cecilia school in san francisco says her school has put up gates in spaces that were once open. >> any gates that we have are pass word protected to get people in. and our doors are as much as possible, we try to have wooden doors where the outside people will be able to come in, so it will be a little harder to shoot-out the glass and come in. they would have to come in through a lot of wood first. our number one job besides teaching our students is to make sure that they're safe, that they know they're in a safe place and very much loved. >> according to the superintendent, it is important to note that awareness and training may have saved lives in connecticut. after the columbine killings in colorado in 1999, schools started doing armed intruder drills like earthquake and tornado drills, and officials say you can expect those to increase. we don't know yet when or if sandy hook elementary will reopen. but when the kids do return to classes, they will likely
read and then pushed aside. >> one of the reasons the president is asking for action without delay is because he knows change can be accomplished, and it's been done before. the assault weapons ban signed by president clinton reduced crime lower than it had been in a generation. it's been 18 years since the crime bill was signed, and eight years since it was allowed to expire. perhaps 24 is why president obama is turning to the bill's architect for guidance. >> i want to single out for special recognition the chairman of the senate judiciary committee who has fought tirelessly for this bill for six long years, senator joe biden. would you stand, senator joe biden. [ applause ] >> the choice of joe biden to lead the current task force on gun violence is no coincidence. the vice president fought against the odds to get democrats and republicans on board for the 1994 crime bill. biden is also a powerful symbol on this issue. his fight to curb gun violence helped him receive an "f" rating from the national rifle association, which i think really makes him qualified for job. the nra cal
